Stiftung Asienhaus asks Chinese Civil Society: What is "Green BRI"?
The term 'Green BRI' or 'green development of the BRI', chin. 绿色一带一路 or 一带一路绿色发展, has already been mentioned in the Deliverables of the First Belt and Road Forum in 2017. However, what does the term actually mean and what does it entail for civil society organsations in BRI host countries?
During this 60 minute open discussion event the China Programme of Stifung Asienhaus invites Chinese civil society organisations to talk about their understanding of 'Green BRI'. Furthermore, the China Programme would like to foster the exchange between Chinese and Southeast Asian civil society organisations on the environmental implications of BRI projects.
Zhao Zhong of Green Camel Bell and Chen Taiyong of the Sichuan Haihui Poverty Alleviation Service Center are going to decode the official Chinese terminology through a Chinese civil society perspective and explain how the 'Green BRI' can be put into practice and how it can be related to the language of the United Nations such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The speakers' presentations will be followed by a Q & A and an open discussion with the audience.
The event will be held in English.
